Law enforcement officials want area drivers to have a safe — and sober — New Year's Eve celebration. But those officials added that people who might be tempted to celebrate a bit too much should reconsider.

Area police, sheriff deputies and state troopers will be out in force through New Year's Eve, and they will not be looking kindly on those who are drinking and driving.
